Top Wild News

  • Wild's Marc-Andre Fleury: Starting in St. Louis

    Fleury will be between the pipes in St. Louis on Thursday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Fleury has won four of his last five starts, giving up 12 goals on 131 shots (.908 save percentage) over that span. He has a 12-10-3 with a 2.92 GAA and an .899 save percentage this season. He will face the Blues, who are averaging just 2.86 goals, 25th in the NHL.

  • Wild's Filip Gustavsson: Falls to Nashville

    Gustavsson allowed six goals on 31 shots in Thursday's 6-1 loss to the Predators.

    It was a rough night for Gustavsson, who was tagged for three goals in the third period en route to the 6-1 defeat. The 25-year-old netminder has just one win in his last five appearances, posting an .870 save percentage in that span. Overall, Gustavsson falls to 16-15-3 with an .893 save percentage and 3.31 GAA while splitting work with Marc-Andre Fleury this season.

  • Wild's Filip Gustavsson: Making road start

    Gustavsson will defend the road goal against the Predators on Thursday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Gustavsson was a little shaky in his last start Tuesday against the Hurricanes, allowing three goals on only 28 shots en route to a 3-2 defeat. He'll attempt to secure his 17th win of the season in a rough road matchup with a red-hot Nashville team that's won six straight games.

  • Wild's Zach Bogosian: Ready to rock

    Bogosian (upper body) will return to the lineup Thursday against the Predators, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Bogosian is expected to return to a third-pairing role following his three-game absence. The 33-year-old vet has picked up nine points through 44 games split between the Lightning and the Wild this season.

  • Wild's Marat Khusnutdinov: Working through visa situation

    Khusnutdinov is working through immigration, with general manager Bill Guerin hoping the winger will be ready to play within a week, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

    Khusnutdinov signed his entry-level contract Wednesday and Guerin expects him to jump right into the lineup once his immigration situation is resolved. He had 20 points in 55 KHL games this season, so expectations for the 21-year-old's production to close out 2023-24 should be fairly low. He was selected 37th overall in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft, and his NHL debut should come fairly soon. Per CapFriendly, he is on the non-roster list until his paperwork is complete.

  • Wild's Marat Khusnutdinov: Inks entry-level contract

    Khusnutdinov signed a two-year, entry-level contract Wednesday.

    Khusnutdinov had six goals, 20 points and 43 PIM in 55 KHL contests between Sochi and St. Petersburg this season. It's not clear when he'll make his Wild debut, but he'll likely initially serve in a middle-six capacity once he does draw into the lineup. Minnesota selected Khusnutdinov with the No. 37 overall pick in the 2020 NHL Draft.

  • Wild's Joel Eriksson Ek: Returns from injury

    Eriksson Ek had three hits and four shots on net in a 3-2 loss to the Hurricanes on Tuesday.

    After leaving Saturday's game with an undisclosed injury, Eriksson Ek returned to his regular spot on the first line centering Matt Boldy and Kirill Kaprizov. Failing to pick up a point, the 27-year-old center saw his six-game point streak come to a close. If he continues to receive top-line minutes and maintain his current level of play, he could easily surpass his previous career high of 61 points.

  • Wild's Filip Gustavsson: Loses close game

    Gustavsson allowed three goals on 28 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 home loss against the Hurricanes.

    Gustavsson and the Wild had a 2-1 lead going into the second period, but they couldn't hang on. Pyotr Kochetkov turned away the remaining shots sent his way, and the Hurricanes found the back of the net in each period to give Gustavsson a save percentage of .893. The inconsistency of Gustavsson has been concerning of late. In one recent game, he allowed five goals on only 16 shots and the next he made 41 saves. Continue to monitor his performance closely before committing to him as a reliable starter.

  • Wild's Zach Bogosian: Won't suit up against Carolina

    Bogosian (upper body) won't be in the lineup Tuesday versus the Hurricanes, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Bogosian, who took part in Tuesday's morning skate, will miss his third consecutive contest. However, he will travel with the Wild on the team's upcoming two-game road trip, so he could return Thursday versus Nashville or Saturday against St. Louis. Bogosian has collected one goal, nine points, 37 PIM, 83 hits and 53 blocked shots in 44 appearances this season between Minnesota and Tampa Bay.

  • Wild's Filip Gustavsson: Tending twine Tuesday

    Gustavsson will patrol the home crease Tuesday versus Carolina, according to Jessi Pierce of NHL.com.

    Gustavsson is coming off a 41-save performance in Friday's 4-2 win over Edmonton. Through 34 games this campaign, he has posted a 16-13-3 record with two shutouts, a 3.23 GAA and an .896 save percentage. Carolina is tied for 12th in the league this season with 3.28 goals per contest.

  • Wild's Joel Eriksson Ek: Good to go

    Eriksson Ek (undisclosed) is good to go for Tuesday's game versus the Hurricanes, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Eriksson Ek exited Saturday's 5-2 win over Seattle in the third period after falling awkwardly along the boards, but he's feeling fine ahead of Tuesday's contest. The 27-year-old pivot has been on fire recently, racking up seven goals and 15 points during his active eight-game point streak.

  • Wild's Connor Dewar: Produces assist in win

    Dewar logged an assist in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Kraken.

    Dewar has two helpers over seven games since he returned from a lower-body injury. The 24-year-old forward is up to 11 points, 47 shots on net, 87 hits and a minus-9 rating through 52 appearances. Dewar plays on the fourth line, and his lack of offense makes him a no-go for most fantasy managers.

  • Wild's Jacob Middleton: Assists in consecutive games

    Middleton posted an assist and three shots on goal in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Kraken.

    Middleton has turned things around with a helper in each of the last two contests to break out of a 10-game slump. The tough defenseman had the secondary assist on Marcus Johansson's first-period marker. Middleton is up to 20 points, 64 shots on net, 119 hits, 121 blocked shots and a minus-8 rating through 58 appearances. Aside from the ugly plus-minus, he's on track for career-best marks across the board.

  • Wild's Ryan Hartman: Nabs helper in win

    Hartman posted a power-play assist, two shots on goal, three blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Kraken.

    Hartman helped out on the first of Kirill Kaprizov's two tallies in the contest. This was Hartman's third helper over the last four games. The 29-year-old forward is up to 30 points (seven on the power play), 119 shots on net, 56 hits, 36 blocked shots, 40 PIM and a minus-3 rating through 53 outings. He's played on the second line recently, which has likely helped to steady his offense.
